If a guy the wrong side of 50, with a bad back, hernia the size of his fist, with chronic asthma and no idea what he is doing - can lose 87kilos in 60 weeks...then anyone can. Check the photos and say to yourself...if he can then why not me?
Second and Third reasons are even better. Your toddler and your baby.
My daughter was nine years old before I started to get my act into gear.
In those nine years I short changed her on the father that she deserves.
Don't get me wrong...I was a good Dad (better than most) - it is just that I didn't give her the best of what I should have been.

Now that I've lost the weight, life is just so much better. I have much more energy and I'm far more engaged in life now rather than being a spectator that I was.
That is why I'm always rabbiting on about the better future that awaits those who start this journey of discovery.
Time to grab that better future with your toddler and baby!
